Ex-Rated Motors

As specialists in EX hazardous area electric motor repairs, we have experience in the repair and overhaul of hazardous area equipment.


Our workshop facility has been authorised by SGS to carry out repair and overhaul services to ATEX Ex rated motors for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

IECEx certification provides independent assurance to ensure all instruments used are calibrated, all personnel are competently trained and all jobs completed are properly documented, with highly controlled processes in place to ensure a high quality repair.

An IECEx Certificate of Conformity for a service facility provider attests that the facility has been independently assessed and found to have appropriate equipment and competent staff, and to operate procedures that demonstrate that the repair, overhaul or modification work conducted complies with IECEx requirements, including IEC 60079-19. It also attests that a service facility has been audited to verify that it meets the IECEx Operational Document OD 314-5 requirements.

The certification relates to repairs and overhaul of equipment used in explosive atmospheres, typically areas where flammable liquids, vapours, gases or combustible dusts are likely to occur in quantities sufficient to cause a fire or explosion.

Staff are also certified through AEMT to BS EN 60079-19:2007 & IEC 60079-19:2006 where both theoretical and practical competency are rigorously assessed with respect to Ex d, Ex de, Ex e and Ex N type pumps and motors.

As such our customers can be assured that their ATEX Ex-rated equipment will be returned to them fully compliant with all regulations and will be safe to operate.
